Thank you for the schooling Samurai, I am ignorant in these matters and do
appreciate being more educated.

Worthwhile to get the name of the stuff straight -
Lipofuscin - pronounced LIE-po-FUSS-in - from the Latin word fuscus,
'dark' - is the yellow-brown pigment.
Often confused with fuchsin - FYOOK-sin - dyes named after the color
fuscia (FYOO-sha) which is named after the flower, which is named
after somebody named Fuchs (FOOKS).
